Description

Face Off is a sport route on the face right of the Nick Of Time corner. An OK warm-up for the harder routes in the area.

Start at a 2-bolt belay anchor just right of the belay anchor for Nick Of Time and Sidekick. Climb up easy rock to a steep headwall and the first bolt. Move left and up (crux). Continue up the face, passing two ledges. Turn a final headwall on the right, and angle left to the anchor shared with Nick Of Time and Stayin' Alive.

Rappel 95' back to the start, or continue with the second pitch of Stayin' Alive.

Location

In Sport Land, on the face just right of the Nick Of Time corner. Eds. the beta photo has been deleted by its submitter.

Protection

2-bolt belay anchor at the start, then [7] bolts to a 2-bolt anchor (same anchor as for Nick Of Time and Stayin' Alive).

Even in approach shoes, never felt anything remotely close to 5.8. Howabout 5.6? Jul 16, 2009
